                             Notes from the arena champ.

      Well, the Virginal Concubine's a nice kid, you know, but she wouldn't make a
Duel2Dudette.  Too nice.  She hasn't got the, uh, stuff, you know?

                                         Chock

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KATI-TEI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  LANGUAGE OF LOVE turned their 2-0-0 turn 
into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see MIKE COLALILLO win 
a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, JAMES DOOLITTLE beat VELESTEN and 
VELESTEN lost 4 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, KATI-TEI may be getting bland, as CHOCK stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks 
and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their 
fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  WANDERERS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... 
mumble... curse...  And it looks like MEDAL OF HONOR 26 avoided them the most this 
turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  THAI was challenged 
more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, 
heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for KATI-TEI's 
morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  FRITILLARY, a glorious 8-8-0 
fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad WANDERERS.  We're all going to die in the 
end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the KATI-TEI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of KATI-TEI.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Thai -- (gasping)  Too much pepper! -- Quinore

Mike Colalillo -- My, aren't you a big thing? -- Fritillary

Ghost of Greek -- Heck.  I'd use stronger language, but I'm being cnesored.  What the
HECK were you doing coming out with no armor and no weapons?  Tell me it was an input
error and you're going to be revived! -- Velesten the remorseful

Shiiz -- Veteran you may be, but you're no gladiator.  You'd do better to stay off
the sands. -- Chock

BROTHER KNIGHTS OF THE DESOLATE EMPIRE -- Hail brothers where ever you are to be
found!  We are engaging in arena 31.  Let them feel our wrath.  Onward to glory!!! --

Soultaker -- Read your e-mail! -- Guardian

10 July 2006
The Dark Knights sat at the Dark Table with grim faces.  All present knew that there
could be no quarter.  The Forces of Desolation would be unleashed.  There would be no
turning back, no mercy and no hesitation to do what was necessary.  Teeth gritted and
knuckles whitened with fury as the IMPERIAL PROCLAMATION was signed by each Dark
Knight.
     AS OF JULY 1, 2006 -- WAR IS DECLARED ON THE ALLIANCE KNOWN AS THE VENDETTA
CARTEL.
     The Desolate Empire -- Dark Knights:  Ancient Creep, Blackstorm, Dok Sik, Goat,
Heathen, Hatebred, Kon, Osiris, Toker, Wasby the Great

14 July 2006
In response to the Desolate Empire's declaration of war, the Vendetta Cartel offers
the following response:

The members of the Vendetta Cartel can be found in 1, 8, 9, 10,  11, 14, 22, 25, 28,
31, 39, 45, 47, 50, 52, 54, 59, 60, 100, and 106.  Stop yapping in the all-arena ads,
pick an arena, issue a challenge, actually win something, and then maybe (and we
stress maybe) you may speak.  You may come to our home arenas (8, 31, and 47) and
confront us, but we suggest you learn to win in your own "home" arena (52) first.
